"In that game I realised [how hard it would be] when I saw how physical they were, how good they are, how high they press, how many good things they do. and this is a team people don't think or don't consider to be a contender to win the Premier League".

Manchester City beat Tottenham easily at Wembley at the end of last season and, with its wide open spaces, I think it is a stadium that suits them.

Spurs' new ground will have a retractable National Football League pitch to avoid this situation, a luxury that Wembley does not provide. "It is incredible. It puts me in the best of myself when I listen - it's a masterpiece", he told the Spanish reporter.

"He helped me to understand and love the game, he gave us secrets because there were things that no-one else could see, "Guardiola eulogised".

Guardiola claimed on Friday he believes Spurs are among a group of five title contenders separated by just two points at the top of the table before the weekend began, also featuring Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Trump Continues Playing Up Issue of Illegal Immigration
Trump was referencing a video that captured a speech Obama made on the Senate floor in 2006, two years before he became president. The Trump-led crackdown on illegal immigrants crossing the United States border has drawn much criticism from the American left.

"I think the circumstances of the previous year, I think the club is not only focused on winning titles or winning games", the former Espanyol and Southampton boss said. Except Anfield and United at home, we won everything in the second season.

A throw away comment by Guardiola past year seemed to cause Pochettino offence with what he saw as the suggestion that Spurs are a "one-man" team.

Taking over relegation-threatened Espanyol on the other side of town in January 2009, Pochettino's first game in charge was a daunting Copa del Rey quarter-final against Guardiola's Barca.

Guardiola praised the quality of Spurs and said they would be even stronger had they been able to spend on new players in the summer.

In any case, he feels Spurs have proved him wrong completely by making a fine start to the season while Kane's form, despite yielding five Premier League goals, has been sporadic.

Ethiopia appoints Africa’s only female president
Sahle-Work Zewde leaves the Parliament after being elected as Ethiopia's first female President in Addis Ababa on Thursday. Her resignation from the United Nations role this week is said to be to allow her take the new position of president.

Tottenham can move above City with a win as Mauricio Pochettino's team try to get back on track following a damaging midweek draw at PSV Eindhoven. "That is going to happen in your stadium".

Most of Pochettino's key players had next to no recovery time after playing deep into the World Cup in Russian Federation while Tottenham have played six of their opening nine games away, albeit winning five of them. We control part of the game, we create more chances, concede few.

"The first year we dropped a lot of points against contenders".

A lot of worldwide players. I'm pretty sure Tottenham have a good greenkeeper.

"I will be Mancunian for rest of my life".

Putin warns of a new arms race with America
Under Trump, the momentum all seems to be toward ending these treaties and letting the stalled nuclear arms race get going again. He said negotiations on its terms could hardly take place if Russian Federation denied breaching the terms in the first place.
